Discovery-owned true crime and mystery network Investigation Discovery (ID) has prepped a six-episode spin-off of its Homicide City franchise, set to premiere next week.
Produced by Entertainment One-backed Blackfin, Homicide City: Charlotte (6 x 60 minutes) will head to the growing metropolis of Charlotte, North Carolina to shadow current Charlotte-Mecklenburg sherriff Garry McFadden and members of the homicide division at the Charlotte- Mecklenburg Police Department as they re-examine historic cases that threatened the safety of the Queen City.
Intimate interviews with surviving family members will be coupled with exclusive archive footage and first-hand accounts from Charlotte Mecklenburg homicide department members to delve deep into one crime that equally defined their careers and reverberated throughout the rapidly growing metropolis.
Each hour-long episode will follow the thought processes and investigative steps taken by Charlotte’s police as they attempt to bring closure to the victims’ grieving families.
Homicide City: Charlotte premieres Dec. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Investigation Discovery.
Elsewhere, sister network Destination America has commissioned Portland-based Road’s End Films to produce an outdoor adventure series set to venture into some of the most striking locations in the Pacific Northwest.
Each episode of On Location (pictured) will follow host Sterling Fiock and his Scottish terrier, Dogmatix, as they journey across Oregon to engage in outdoor activities of growing intensity. Fiock and his furry friend will be joined by subject matter experts that help guide the pair’s experiences.
On Location, which will debut on Destination America in early 2020, is executive produced by Carey Fiock and Sterling Fiock for Road’s End Films. Andrew Crawford is EP for Destination America.
“On Location is all about exploring a world beyond the couch relevant to outdoor enthusiasts both amateur and experienced,” said Road’s End Films in a statement. “Sterling presents viewers with a variety of adventures ranging from accessible to extreme, while imparting valuable knowledge and insight into the infrastructure that makes it all possible.”
